The communication chain is constituted by a source and a recipient, separated by a transmission channel which may represent a portion of cable, an optical fiber, a radio channel, or a satellite link. Whatever the channel, the processing blocks implemented in the communication chain have the same foundation. This book aims to itemize. In this first volume, after having presented the base of the information theory, we will study the source coding techniques with and without loss. Then we analyze the correcting codes for block errors, convutional and concatenated used in current systems.
Wireless telecommunication systems generate a huge amount of interest. In the last two decades, these systems have experienced at least three major technological leaps, and it has become impossible to imagine how society was organized without them. In this book, we propose a macroscopic approach on wireless systems, and aim at answering key questions about power, data rates, multiple access, cellular engineering and access networks architectures.
We present a series of solved problems, whose objective is to establish the main elements of a global link budget in several radiocommunications systems. Contents 1. Radio Propagation.
2. F/TDMA and GSM.
3. CDMA and UMTS.
4. OFDM and LTE.
5. MIMO and Beamforming.
8. Digital Communications Fundamentals.

This second volume covers the following blocks in the chain of communication: the modulation baseband and transposed band, synchronization and channel estimation as well as detection. Variants of these blocks, the multicarrier modulation and coded modulations are used in current systems or future.
